dbforge error testing databse connection

Post by alanm » Wed 29 Sep 2010 19:55

I have just downloaded the 1.0.15 version and am trying to use the (EDIT,TEST CONNECTION) software and I get the following error below. When not using the TEST Connection button and just clicking NEXT i receive the error popup "Can not load Oracle client. Check your PATH environment variable and registry settings." What should my PATH be set as?

Probably, the PATH environment variable does not contain the path to the oci.dll file or this path is incorrect.
You need to add the correct path to this variable. Usually the oci.dll file is located in the ..\BIN subfolder of your Oracle Client.
